Maggie & Mady | Denver Couple

It's Mady!!

I went to High School with Mady and as we did this shoot it felt as if no time had past. We accepted each other exactly the way the other was and picked up where we had left off. It was fun to know that going 9 years without seeing someone doesn't mean that bonds break. We were friends then and we are friends now.

It was so sweet of Maggie to let Mady and I pretty much catch up the entire shoot while she just hung out looking all gorgeous. These two have great chemistry and are a ton of fun! A serious pleasure to have these ladies in front of my camera!

I have to share some sweet words Mady sent me after seeing her photos for the first time, "Debi... these are absolutely beautiful. The world is incredibly lucky to have an artist like you in it.  You truly capture moments and make them last forever. Maggie and I will cherish these photos forever. Thank you so much. So much..... You are a blessing to this world. I hope you know that."

K, you can stop crying.... how sweet is she!!! So not only did I get to have her in front of my camera but she brings me to tears with her kind words. Such beautiful people. I am truly blessed to have such wonderful souls as my clients. #IloveMyJob

I've been thinking a lot lately about the gift God gave me. I have been blessed with this talent and Now understand how precious it is to me. I know that I will continue to develop it AND in looking back over the last year it's very intriguing to reflect on.  

This time last year I moved to Colorado with hopes of an amazing new job and bright things on the horizon. However, it definitely wasn't that. I don't want to dwell on it to explain but to say the least this year has definitely been one of growth.  

I have learned a lot about who I am some of which I am happy about and some of which I am happy I have the ability to change. I learned how I deal with pressure and how much I can deal with before I just crumble.  

Ive never been through such intense, uncomfortable and enlightening experiences.  

In May when I realized it was time for a change. I found myself excited but nervous to go back to doing photography. I knew I loved it and could do it well since it was something I had been doing for years.  

I had been told from my job that I had been at that it was either all in or nothing. Meaning I could not allow photography to distract me from the position they wanted me in. Since they were paying me a significant amount of $$$ I figured-- "well, I do like money" And when I stopped photography my mindset was that it was tedious.  

That right there has changed more than I ever imagined. 

I now have a renewed absolute LOVE for what I am doing.  I eliminated all the things that were tedious and decided to focus on the things that brought me true joy.  

The people.  

The memories.  

The pieces of my art that now hang in the homes of the families I get to meet.  

It's such a blessing to get to know the people I am meeting or getting to see year after year. By increasing my customer interaction and customer service I actually enjoy my work even more! I'm so happy that I am literally waiting for my next shoot with excitement. I want to bust it out quick just to see or hear their adorable reactions! 

It's my own little version of the feeling you get when watching one of those really good romantic comedies.... I laugh, cry, smile and then get that warm fuzzy feeling like a happy ending. 

So, thank you my amazing clients and friends  for allowing me to be part of your journey in this life. Thank you for letting me document even just a piece of your happiness. You have made my life truly rich.

Xoxo,

Calvin AND McKyley | Part ONE

They're perfect. And so is there love!

Calvin & McKyley are so happy it puts a smile on my face everytime I peak at these photos.

We started of heading up to Rocky Mountain National Park. With gorgeous views and stunning backgrounds, it was every thing we could have asked for!! Even the occasional Elk call made it into the back ground.... The only problem was that in a National Park when one pulls over they think it's for animals.... HA!

They both could be models I SWEAR!

Every spot perfect and made even better with these two laughing and giggling together.

Then they pulled out their mementos from their time together and their loved just flowed...

All the moments together were perfect and sweet and dear to me to be able to capture them.

And it ended the best way it could with sweet cuddles in a fuzzy blanket.
